Abstract:

The Six-Day War is widely seen as having had major impact on American Jewry, including its relationship with Israel. Whether the changes brought about in that relationship were 'revolutionary,' as suggested by some, is another question. In any case, there is considerable evidence that Israel moved from the periphery to the center in the structure and culture of American Jewish community.
